About the garden: The International Rescue Committee operates this new community garden as part of its mission to resettle and integrate international refugees in the United States. A community garden can serve as a therapeutic space for people to work with their hands and bodies, talk and meet with people, and learn new skills. It also provides gardeners an opportunity to grow their own produce, flowers, medicine, etc.
By offering garden plots to both IRC clients and West Sacramento community members, the IRC hopes that the Kuchenu Community Garden can provide these benefits to all.
